Sergeant Vincent Francis Fernando was a Sri Lankan airman of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who was killed during the Second World War.

He was born in Ceylon (present-day Sri Lanka), the son of Pelis John and Agnes Georgia Fernando.

Fernando, of 166 Squadron, died on 3 August 1943, when a German night-fighter shot down his Vickers Wellington (serial HE464) over the Netherlands while it was engaged on an operation against Hamburg.

The crew have no known grave and are commemorated by the Runnymede Memorial.
